We had a good session two weeks ago, with Dan, Roger, Clayton and myself. The frame for the oil coolers is in place, with them mounted. The water header tank, courtesy of OBP, is also in place. The welding on the tank is gorgeous! OBP have kindly offered to make up the water pipe bends for us after we got them modelled up.
The supercharger belts are all in place, thanks to new partner, Gates. Transdev have also been very helpful on the technical side to finalise the belts and pulleys for the best fit.
Goodridge have been really helpful in supplying all the fittings for the oil lines, water connections and brake lines.
Harrison billet brakes are supplying brake pads to go with their superb callipers.
SRS and NGK continue to be powerful partners in enabling us to finalise the engine and accessories as we approach the stage where we can run the engine up.
Solidworks has proved to be equally useful as Dan designs and modifies parts. He only did one day training, and now seems pretty conversant with the package, which proves how easy it is to grasp; no offence Dan!
We have the injector plugs as Clayton starts the engine wiring, and talks are going ahead with a couple of ECU companies as we have been let down on that front. We already have a firm interested, so are just looking at alternatives before committing.
Ash has done a remarkable job on the oil system. It is a work of art, and is exactly what Dan envisaged.
We will be featuring at the Engineering Shows on the 11th and 12th November at the NEC.
